“As a social worker, I believe that each person I meet has unique strengths, perspectives, and beliefs that shape their everyday experience. I strive to meet each individual with an open and non-judgmental approach, and explore together how we can take steps towards achieving their personal goals. I feel so grateful for the opportunity to walk alongside my clients on their journey, celebrating each accomplishment together – big or small.”
